The subpoenaed executives, ho are to appear before the ederal grand jury within two reeks, are employes of 23 air- ncs that have transatlantic outcs, according to the Times. Representatives of Aeroflot, le Soviet airline, are among lose reportedly subpoenaed. "Very Widespread" In an interview, Acting U.S. Homey Edward Boyd told the imes: "The evidence we have far indicates that this ticket cbating is very extensive, very idesprcad." He said the investigation is loking into alleged fare mal- ractices, possible airline viola- tions of'anti-trust statutes, re- ports that kickbacks were not reported on the tax returns of the travel agents, and other pos- sible offenses. The Times quoted sources fa- miliar with the case as saying the rebates ranged from 4 to 50 percent of the fare, in addition to the legal sales commission to agents of 7 to 11 percent. "Pushed into It" "We were pushed into said one unnamed airline of- ficial quoted by the Times. He added that airlines that did not give kickbacks to the agents and tour wholesalers suddenly began losing customers to other that did offer the al- leged rebates. "We had to join or we wouldn't have any people on our he said. The Times said the payments were in the form of cash trans- ferred in the U.S. or Europe, or in checks issued to the agents. Sometimes dummy corporations received the checks for the agents, or the airline made le- gitimate payments to the tour organizers for advertising or the printing of brochures.
